4.0 out of 5 stars A hypnotic journey through the night into early hours of dawn., 6 Aug 2011
By 
This review is from: IMPERMANENCE (Audio CD)
A smooth, hypnotising and, at times, emotional selection of tracks. With the help of vocals, especially the beautiful voice of Kid A (Track 1 and 7), this album has no sharp edges, but flows and echoes down in a rich and exotic sound realm, similar to Agoria's mix releases, especially Fabric 57, which features two tracks from this album (Tracks 5 and 10).

In a selection of reverberating, mostly mid-tempo rhythms and sounds, there are darkly sensual moments, like Track 5 Speechless, feat. Carl Graig, with the lyric touching on, but, luckily, not crossing the border between erotic and tacky. It's a track that is fantastically used in Fabric 57. Instrumentation is quite rich, too. There are stretched-out strings with some piano trickles (Grande Torino, Track 6, for example), there is a tribal, ritualistic madness with trance-like vocals in Little Shaman (Track 8), there's a nocturnal, sorrowful mourning horn with echoes of Miles in Track 9 and there's a wonderfully hypnotic journey through the night into the early hours of dawn in the last track, which could go on repeat for hours without losing its hefty atmosphere.

On the whole, I enjoyed the smoothed-out richness, and weirdly hypnotic quality of the album. It plays really well at night and if you're a night person, you'll most certainly enjoy this.
